This excellent book tells the fascinating tale of the role of the Chesapeake Bay during the Civil War years. The author, Eric Mills, uses primary sources to relate the lively activities that took place in and around the estuaries, creeks, and rivers of the Bay. A story of gunboats, smugglers, privateers and mighty armies; of Lincoln on a ship's deck and Jefferson Davis at a fortress wall; of cavaliers and street brawlers, ironclads and wild piracy, shoreline artillery and tidewater guerrillas, blockade-running oystermen and the unsung sailors of the Potomac Flotilla.

Highly recommended for the information it provides and for its sheer readability. This book is a treasure, sure to delight Civil War buffs, historians and anyone who loves this region.

By Eric Mills - Soft cover - 328 pages - 35 b/w photos, 56 illustrations, 5 maps
